This information cannot be used to gather any personally identifiable information about you. It will only allow us to track the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, marketing and banner advertisement campaigns.

- The Website uses Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to evaluate your use of the Website. Google Analytics place a third-party cookie on your computer that is then used to compile reports of visitor traffic and internet usage. Google Analytics does not have a database of individual profiles for each visitor and only collects aggregate data
- For information on how Google Analytics uses data please visit “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these Services. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular Service. In addition, Orion may disclose account or other personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with Orion’ rights or property, other Website or Software users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
- Orion may be forced to disclose an individual’s personal information when compelled by a lawful request made by a recognized public authority or where required to meet national security and or law enforcement requirements.

Inquires about access should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Deleting your information. Federal and state regulations may require that we store questions or submissions for various periods of time. In order to comply with these regulations, we may be unable to delete information from our databases.
- Choice – Timing of Opt-Out. Due to the nature of the services it provides to its clients, it is difficult for Orion to provide individuals the option to opt-out. Orion therefore encourages individuals to first request to opt-out with their employer (i.e., Orion client). In support of the opt-out concept and Orion commitment to the principle of choice, individuals who desire to exclude their Personal Data from the processing Orion performs, they may send a request to email@example.com. Orion will forward such request to its client and together they will determine the best course of action.
- Request to stop receiving emails from us. Periodically, Orion may send you emails to alert you to various opportunities available at the Website or in connection with the Software. If you do not wish to receive any of these offers, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to remove yourself from our mailing list.

- EU citizens have the right of access and correction of their personal data.
